Transonic Supports Surgeon’s Dream for Ethiopian Children’s Heart Center and Training Facility

However, he envisioned more than helping individual children. He also began laying the groundwork for caring for such cases in Ethiopia. Cornelia Schollbach, a Braunschweig cardiac surgery intensive care nurse, was listening. She asked if it was possible to send a complete team of doctors, cardiac perfusionists, and nursing professionals as well as all of the necessary medical equipment to Addis Ababa for short periods of time in order to perform heart valve replacement operations.

Thus, the Heart for Ethiopia Project was born!

At the time, there was not a single hospital in Ethiopia with the capability of performing cardiac
